Ash Wednesday

Burning my fire in the sun,
I lose control and kill
Not just myself but everyone.

I’m only joking, only having fun.
See how I light this twenty-dollar bill,
Burning my fire in the sun.

This morning day had blazingly begun.
I told the night nurse we were ill –
Not just myself but everyone.

She smiled and said, “I gotta run,”
Got in her car and swallowed a pill,
Burning her fire in the sun.

Her wheels turned and the hubcaps spun.
I watched her from my bed until
Not just herself but everyone

Disappeared from God’s creation,
Dissolving as the ashes spill,
Burning their fires in the sun,
Not just themselves but everyone.

Speak Your Mind
